2001 really was a phenomenal draft.

Getting a franchise QB is indeed a big deal, but outside of Cam we spent picks on...

Terrell McClain (3rd)
Sione Fua (3rd)
Brandon Hogan (4th)
Lawrence Wilson (6th)
Zack Williams (6th)
Lee Ziemba (7th)

There was Pilares in the 5th but I'm pretty sure he'll be gone by September too.

And of course, the 2nd round pick from that year was used to get Armanti Edwards in 2010.

If the rest of the draft had produced something, I could see the argument. But outside of Cam, that's a crapfest.

We hit on the pick that mattered most. Cam was worth the whole draft imo

No one player is ever worth an entire draft, not even a franchise quarterback.  That kind of thinking leads to stuff like the Ricky Williams trade.

 

Those picks could have been used to obtain players like the kind we're missing right now.

The best draft pick was Newton followed closely by Luke Kuechly.   The best draft was 2001.  A draft has to include more than 1 great pick so 2011 doesn't really qualify.  2007 was very good as well although it took Johnson 3 years to actually become a starter.

Joe Adams hurts me though :(, I thought he was gonna be a beast


He was the later pick that everyone wanted. He was a guy brought up numerous times on here before the draft. I was finally like "they picked my guy!" And then you see how that turned out. I'm still disappointed. Maybe if he wasn't so tiny, he'd have another shot. No other teams jumped in him either.

2001 hands down, Smitty alone, now with jenkins and Morgan this is even more obvious.

Safe to say 2001 is the consensus pick here, and I think it's the right one.

 

Combine that with the first part of the 2002 draft and you have the foundation for our early success under Hurney.

 

(pity he couldn't sustain it)

After a second look 2001 is still obvious but 2007 is nice too !
